FIDE Candidates 2016 - Video Recap Round 14

Opening: B67: Sicilian: Richter-Rauzer

Player(s): Karjakin, Caruana

Eventually, after all the speculations, Karjakin is the clear winner of the FIDE Candidates' 2016. He beat Caruana in a thrilling game, to qualify for the World Championship Match to be held in November in New York City. Kudos to the American  number 1, who tried hard to pose problems to the Russian. Anand and Svidler drew, leaving everything in the hands of the two possible winners. Of course, playing white with draw odds is a huge advantage, but Karjakin showed the right nerves and attitude to be a worthy challenger to Magnus Carlsen. He had the chutzpah to sac a rook, though it was clearly a winning line after Caruana's blunder in time trouble and under an unfathomable pressure, as brilliantly anticipated by our commentator GM Larry Christiansen during the ICC live commentary. Congratulations to Karjakin!
